Managing Director/Licensed Estate Agent/Auctioneer
Commencing his real estate career way back in 1984, Jeff quickly established himself as a leader in this industry. He has held every senior real estate position and job title worth having in some of the most successful such business in Melbourne. Renowned among his peers as a Master Auctioneer, with more than 3,000 auctions to his credit and many more property sales besides, Jeff has received so many industry awards for his auction, sales and listing skills that the major ones are covered separately, below*.
As Managing Director of Century 21 Carnegie Jeff is completely hands-on. He guarantees to handle your entire selling process, personally.
With three decades of domestic sales experience in the South East and Inner Eastern suburbs of Melbourne specialising in Carnegie, Murrumbeena, Hughesdale and Bentleigh East, plus being part of the largest real estate company in the world, with over 40 local offices, meshed in to a phenomenal, buyer referral network, Jeff is uniquely capable of helping you to achieve your real estate goals.
A marketing specialist with an uncanny ability to read the market, who is energetic, passionate, results-driven and hands-on, Jeff strives to succeed for all of his clients.
So, how does a man who lives and breathes real estate get away from it all? At every opportunity, Jeff enjoys football, exercise, swimming, gardening, travel and, especially, family time with his two sons - and a good chat around the Aussie BBQ with loved ones.
"I achieve total satisfaction in helping others achieve the dreams, whether it be buying the dream home or achieving an excellent sales price for a much deserved vendor"

"Just a brief note of appreciation in selling our Carnegie home last month for in excess of $1,000,000 in what has been a challenging market. With 3 storey apartments being built on both sides of our home during the sale process and the train line directly abutting our rear yard, I can’t thank you enough for all of your advice on presentation, availability and quick response to our questions, nothing was too much trouble. We certainly think the result achieved was the very best possible on auction day with both developers and home buyers competing.
We have no hesitation in recommending you in the future and will be in touch, thanks for the bottle of Moët on the day."
Jenny & Steve (Carnegie)
“Your knowledge, professionalism and expertise assisted us greatly in preparation for the sale of our mother's property. The recommended campaign path for our upcoming auction has been first class and has gathered an abundance of market interest. The number of attendees at the auction was incredible which was indicative of the market awareness you created. On the day, the way you presented, handled and kept the interest of the potential buyers was excellent. You achieved a sale price that was beyond our expectation and it was a pleasure to have you representing our family throughout the sale. Thank you, Jeff.”
“The stress of selling a home comes with so many doubts and questions:
Have we chosen the right Real Estate Agent? Will they have our best interest at heart? Will they get the best price for us? What about the advertising? Will they keep us informed of how things are going? Are they trustworthy?
Jeff excelled in all of these concerns. We have to say that Jeff's auctioning skills far surpassed any we had ever witnessed at any live auction we have been to or on any TV property shows on home auctions.”
